Facts about Astrid

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
DOB: February 1, 2014

Astrid is a smart, affectionate and playful girl. She has TONS of personality and has completely blossomed since she came into TCR care. When she first arrived she was emaciated, had never been to a vet and just huddled in a corner shaking. But she now leaps into the air for her toys like LeBron James and she actually plays fetch. Really! She has an adorable chocolate milk moustache and if she could hold a pencil in her paw, we swear that she’d play Sudoku! She also decided on her own to contribute to her foster family household in several ways. For example, she’ll stroke and lick your hair to help you in your personal grooming (but only if you let her of course). She is a very focused bug hunter. And she has taken it upon herself to be a personal alarm clock in the morning. Just at the right time (or maybe an hour before) she’ll come and wake you up and then return every five minutes like a furry Snooze button.

Astrid occasionally has a feisty moment if she gets frightened, so we recommend no small children. We’re not sure how she is with dogs but would probably be OK if the dog was really friendly. She might be best as an only cat although she did get along really well with her foster brother, mainly because he was super friendly and not afraid of her. Astrid is looking for the right family who will love her just for who she is... will you?

About Toronto Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

***ALL cats over 8 months of age have a reduced adoption fee of $100 for the month of August 2016!!***

Toronto Cat Rescue is a registered, no-kill charity run by volunteers.

Our mission is to rescue and find homes for abandoned, sick or injured cats from situations of abuse, neglect or imminent euthanasia.

Our vision is for Toronto to be a city in which no adoptable cat is killed and rescue organizations such as Toronto Cat Rescue are no longer needed.

Our registered charity number: 889-198-727-RR-0001

Our Adoption Process...

Decided on the cat or kitten you would like to adopt? Please call 416-538-8592, or email

An adoption counsellor will return your call and give you more details about the cat you are interested in and ask some questions about your home to make sure the cat will be a "purr-fect" fit. We are happy to answer any questions you may have as well.

You will be supplied with the foster home address to have a meet and greet with your kitty. If both parties are happy, you can sign the TCR Contract of Adoption, pay the adoption fee and take your cat home with you in a safe carrying case.

Adoption fee is $175 per cat. This ensures that the cats that come into our care receive the attention they need, are spayed or neutered, and receive a rabies vaccination at the appropriate age. It includes 6 weeks of free pet insurance. For City of Toronto residents, the adoption fee includes a mandatory City of Toronto cat license that is valid for one year. As you can imagine, these fees only begin to cover our costs; donations and ongoing fundraising efforts carry us the rest of the way!


1. ALL senior cats (8 years or older) have an adoption fee of the adopters choice, vs. our standard adoption fee of $175.

2. Our adoption fee for a bonded pair is $100 per cat, vs. $175 per cat.
